Kindle Fire is a Tablet PC

Ars Technica claims Kindle Fire is not a tablet, but they are wrong. It has a setting to allow installing other software so you can extend the limited Android/Linux distro Amazon installs on it or put GNU/Linux or a full version of Android/Linux on it. Amazon has released their full source code so getting root access and playing around with the internals is easy. It’s only a matter of time before othe distros of GNU/Linux appear on the Fire.
